If you’re thinking about giving your closet a facelift, keep in mind that some classic fashion trends and pieces may come and go in popularity, but they never go out of style.
These are the pieces you must keep in your possession.
If you’re curious about what they are, keep reading.
A new year is the ideal opportunity to go through our wardrobes and take a closer look at the items we own, determining whether or not they are genuinely helping us. Is now a good time to move them out if they aren’t?
However, you must be very careful not to neglect some of the important core fundamentals. These are the pieces that you may not be overly enthusiastic about, but that you should keep in your wardrobe for the long run.
They’re the pieces that, if you move them out and discard them, you’ll be sorry.
To avoid any regrets, I’d like to highlight several timeless pieces that, no matter what happens in fashion, are worth keeping.
Blazers are the one thing that is absolutely necessary, but only if you are into this particular style.
I understand that blazers aren’t for everyone. Blazers, on the other hand, despite being quite on trend at the present, do definitely vary in terms of popularity, but they are timeless pieces that can be pulled out years later and still function. They’ll still appear contemporary.
You can give all of these classic fundamental pieces a modern twist by mixing them with other on-trend pieces.
These are the essentials that you should keep in your collection.
Keep blazers in your closet, whether they’re fitted, cropped, or oversized, which is the current trend. Don’t get rid of the blazers you already have.
If you don’t have any blazers, it’s worth considering adding one to your wardrobe and seeing if it’s a look that works for you.
A blazer is a versatile garment that may be worn with a variety of outfits. They’re definitely worth a shot.
Denim jeans are the next item to which we must exercise extreme caution before parting with our denim.
The current denim trend is for somewhat bigger, looser, baggier, wide leg denim jeans, but that doesn’t mean our skinny jeans, slim fits, are eternally out of style.
We all know that fashion is cyclical, and denim jeans will always be in style, regardless of what is popular at the time. They’ll always be willing to assist you in putting together some truly amazing outfits.
If you adore your skinny jeans, or whatever type you prefer, consider twice before getting rid of them.
They can easily be modernized by simply adding some recent updates. Hold on to your denim. It really doesn’t date.
I learned this lesson the hard way when I moved house a few years ago and had to get go of a lot of my knee-high boots.
I reasoned that since I didn’t work in a corporate office, I didn’t need those knee-high boots. Although a couple of them wore flats, the majority of them wore heels.
I got rid of them all, and now I’d like to get my hands on a few of pairs of those exact boots.
As a result, I’ve had to learn my lesson the hard way.
Knee-high boots, and ankle boots in particular, independent of heel and toe shape, are products that you should keep on hand.
I understand that boots’ heels and toes vary over time, but if you keep them long enough, you’ll get that wear out of them.
So, before you toss out some of your high-end footwear, think long and hard about it.
Retro sneakers are another classic that you should keep in mind when it comes to footwear.
Obviously, sneaker trends come and go with each season. Some seasons are all white shoes, others are big dad style sneakers, and yet others are just incredibly old.
But, regardless of what you own, sneakers are always a nice look and can help you put together some seriously stylish casual ensembles.
Keep your sneakers, especially if they’re still in fantastic shape and look great. Keep them close because they don’t date.
Button-down shirts are another classic worth keeping, and while this nearly goes without saying, I’ve included it on my list.
Long-sleeved button-down shirts with a straight neckline are absolutely worth keeping.
We currently know that big button-down shirts are popular. But all shirts are going to be a piece that you can pull out.
You can wear them alone or as part of a layering set. With the sleeves rolled up, they can be worn as small beach cover-ups.
A versatile button-down shirt can be worn in a variety of ways. Because of this, and because they don’t tend to date, I strongly advise you to keep these pieces before moving them out.
Chunky knits are another timeless fashion item that is well worth investing in for the long run.
Many of you, I’m sure, are wearing and appreciating your chunky knits. They’re great for cuddling up with, especially when it’s cold outside.
These warm bulky knits are definitely really useful. They are, however, the type of piece that may be pulled out year after year. They’ll still seem stylish and current.
This season, it’s all about super-sized chunky knits. Any thick knit, on the other hand, will work.
As I previously stated, if you want to give any of your classics a modern twist, you can do so with accessories such as new purses, earrings, or scarves.
Personally, I bounce in and out of love with this trend, which is the traditional Breton stripes.
The classic Breton stripe will never go out of style, whether it’s on a striped tee, a long sleeve tee, a top, or a striped knit.
There will be times when it is more popular. It isn’t as popular this season.
The classic Breton stripe is one of those pieces that you can pick out and wear at any time and appear fresh, chic, and stylish.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to keep some of those stripes, I strongly advise you to do so.
Long line coats are another timeless classic that you should keep for a long time.
Obviously, these jackets are pricey, but they also don’t go out of style.
These items are very timeless, regardless of what’s going on with the lapels, collars, material, styling, or whether they’re belted or not.
In the winter, they’re the kind of final touch for an ensemble. Not to mention that they are warm, comfortable, and quite useful.
So hang on to your high-quality winter jackets for a long time, since they will last you a long time.
Puffer coats, jackets, and vests are another traditional gear to keep on hand when it comes to staying warm.
We’ve seen a lot of puffers, and they come in a variety of colors.
I did move one a few years back. Because it was so bulky and taking up so much space in my closet, I decided to get rid of it. What I needed to do was just to move it out and pack it away.
It’s a piece that’ll be extremely adaptable and lightweight, making it ideal for travel. A puffer has numerous advantages.
These pieces are truly necessary; they’re wonderful for keeping you warm while also providing a quirky fashion edge, especially some of the colorful puffers we’ve seen this season.
Keep those puffs of pieces, and if you don’t have any, now might be an excellent moment to get some.
The next item is a slip dress, which is a personal favorite of mine.
I have a few of slip dresses in my closet that have saved me on numerous occasions when I’ve had nothing new to wear.
What’s amazing about them is that they’re truly a year-round piece.
Slip dresses and camisole slip tops are ideal layering pieces because they can be worn with or without a layer underneath.
If you put a slip dress over a thick knit and wear it with knee-high boots, it might look like a skirt.
I adore how flexible they are, as well as how trans-seasonal they are.
If you don’t want to flaunt your arms, layer your outfit to hide some of the regions of your body you don’t want to flaunt.
A basic slip dress in any color or a slip camisole, on the other hand, will always have a place in my closet.
The last classic that is quite crucial to have, and these are the things that are extremely simple to discard and regret, is our favorite dresses.
Beautiful dresses are classic pieces that never go out of style. I’m not referring to evening gowns. I’m simply referring to the dresses you’d wear to work.
I have a few of linen dresses that I’ll be able to wear for years to come, regardless of what’s going on in terms of trends and fashion.
When I think about some of my favorite dresses, they’re ones that I’ve had for a long time.
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the latest fashion trends and believe that this particular style isn’t fashionable, but keep in mind that updating some of your favorite pieces with accessories is a snap.
Before you toss out some of your favorite and tried-and-true clothes, consider carefully.
